Sunkissed Velvet

Hey there poisers!
So I've come in contact with a lot of people who've expressed their fears for wearing velvet. When I asked why, some of the answers were that it's too textured or too soft, delicate, heavy etc some even said they didn't know how to wear it. Before that I had no idea that there was any commotion about the beauty. But then I was quickly taken back to my childhood and I remembered when my mom dressed me and my sisters in a particular collection of velvet two piece outfit (top and pants). I had a yellow one disliked it only because it looked different I thought. I guess I couldn't make out what it was about the darn special thing. Whoever said different has to be bad eh?  ใ‚ท

So anyways I decided to do some research about what I nicknamed "the velvetphobia". 
Turns out velvet is back in big! And it's very elegant I must say!

There are different types of velvets, ranging from the weight and texture type to name a couple, crushed velvet, light velvet, velveteen etc. Now it would be wise to wear light velvet on a warmer day, and then any other one works great on the colder days. Yes they're actually handy when there's no one to keep you warm! True right? ☺

Since many velvet clothes come in nice bold colours, it is always a nice idea to pair it with a neutral colour in order to let out the glow of it. Or you can also wear a one tone look or one piece velvet item just like I have done. 

Also, I have seen some men wear this same material recently in the form of suits and blazers and quite dashing I must say.

Can you identify any velvets around you and see if you can admire the look, what's your take on it now? You can find them in form of tops, skirts, dresses, shoes and backpacks all around you.

I Turned My Sun Yellow Maxi Skirt Into A Dress

Hi guys! I Hope you enjoyed the last post!? Today I'll be showing you how I wore a maxi skirt like a dress or how I turned it into a two piece wear however way you want to put it. I love this skirt because it is so big and comfy like a blanket (a need for the winter matters)...and then you've got the beautiful yellow...yass. This look was inspired at the very last minute while I was packing up for a photoshoot because initially it wasn't one of the things I was packing up that day. The skirt caught my eye in my wardrobe and immediately I remembered that I had a crop top which I had recently bought from H&M, so I thought to myself what if I wore this skirt in a way that I'm not helping everyone  to sweep the floor with it for a change(haha!)...and behold the look was birthed!

Every time I've worn this skirt I've pretty much always had good vibes only. I think if one should dress up, the clothes they're wearing should always make them feel great or say s…
